Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: How on earth do I listen to these?

Welcome Aboard!! md5s are not the audio files. You can only download the audio files from audience recordings. There is a link at the top of the home page for downloadable shows. For the soundboard recordings the shows can be streamed from the site and there are two ways to do that. Either use the player on the righthand side of the site or click the link in the box on the lefthand side. The latter will allow you to stream through itunes.

Please don't ask at this forum if there is a way to download the soundboards. The answer is yes, however it is not the wishes of the band so we choose not to discuss this here as most of us are content with the current arrangement. In late 2005 we lost access to everything and that sucked and none of us want to risk revisiting that.

So enjoy what is here and I hope this is not your only post on this forum.

The wishes of the band, as I understand them, are that no lossless soundboards be downloadable here on the Archive. But, strangely enough, I have been known to be wrong.

At this site, their request was no downloading of any soundboards, regardless of format. Thats why the shows are for streaming only.
